TV - The Man Who Fell To Earth

"You have a chance to change the future." Yes, they've really done it. The new drama series adaptation of The Man Who Fell To Earth comes to Showtime in the Spring. Watch the trailer...

Based on the Walter Tevis novel of the same name and the iconic film that starred David Bowie, The Man Who Fell To Earth will follow a new alien character ( played by Chiwetel Ejiofor) who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future.

The Man Who Fell To Earth also stars Naomie Harris, who plays Justin Falls, a brilliant scientist and engineer who must conquer her own demons in the race to save two worlds., Jimmi Simpson, Rob Delaney, and Sonya Cassidy, as well as featuring recurring roles for Josh Herdman and Kate Mulgrew.

The series was developed by Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet. They said "Walter Tevis' visionary novel gave us a tech god Willy Wonka from another planet, brought to life by David Bowie's legendary performance, that foretold Steve Jobs' and Elon Musk's impacts on our world... The series will imagine the next step in our evolution, seen through the eyes of an alien who must learn what it means to become human, even as he fights for the survival of his species."

Kurtzman and Joss Agnew also directed various episodes, with Season One boasting episode titles as follows [I see a theme here - Ed]:
